Blink Charging Co. and Amerit Fleet Solutions announced a cooperative agreement to provide on-site preventive maintenance support for Blink’s growing fleet customers.
The agreement allows Blink customers to tap into Amerit’s expertise to provide on-site preventive care and service on Blink’s fleet of charging stations, helping increase uptime, safety, and reliability and keep electric fleets on the road.
Blink is a manufacturer, owner, operator, and provider of electric vehicle charging equipment and services, while Amerit provides customized nationwide fleet maintenance and repair programs.
“Thanks to significant advances in electric vehicle battery technology, and more government mandates to lower vehicle emissions, the growth of electric fleet vehicles is steadily climbing, requiring unique needs in servicing charging infrastructure,” said Michael Battaglia, chief revenue officer at Blink Charging. “The agreement with Amerit ensures Blink is provided the best in electric vehicle charger maintenance to keep electric fleet vehicles charged and operational, a key component to total cost of ownership.”
Charging Up EV Infastructure Maintenance
Amerit's EV Anywhere program provides the highest quality maintenance and repair services on location by leveraging their nationwide footprint of more than 1,700 trained technicians across the country.
As fleets are transitioning to electric vehicles and installing Blink Charging equipment, Amerit’s team can mobile support and service, as well as ongoing preventive maintenance on the Blink Charging infrastructure.
“Blink is a leader in electric vehicle charging equipment, and we’re looking forward to supporting their customers by offering service programs across the U.S.,” said Amerit’s CEO Dan Williams. “With trained and certified technicians spread across the country, Amerit stands ready to rapidly scale services to Blink customers.”
As part of its service, Amerit will provide quarterly, bi-annual, or annual checks to ensure Blink’s fleet charging stations are clean, functioning, and report any damage that may have occurred. They are the first point of contact physically to the charger if there should be a need to report any warranty or serviceability issues.
“Amerit Fleet has been a leader in vehicle uptime and maintenance, and we applaud them for expanding their offerings to meet the demands of the growing electric vehicle market, and offer a full solution for electrified fleets,” added Amy Dobrikova, VP Fleet Solutions at Blink Charging.
